The Communicable Disease Epidemiologist Program at the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has been notified that young boys William and Alexander Faber had both contracted E. coli O157:H7.
When questioned, their mother recounted how the two boys had eaten hamburgers at the USAF Academy faulty picnic. The hamburgers were purchased at WalMart, and manufactured by Flanders Provision Company.
Additional cases of E. coli have surfaced from the same frozen hamburger product made by Flanders. The US Department of Agriculture issued a recall of 900,000 pounds of the frozen ground beef patties by Flanders.
